Rafting the Nile offers a world-class adrenaline adventure, but the country’s most iconic experience is tracking mountain gorillas in their misty habitat. And if you view the Big Five, you’ll see that nature – diverse and resplendent – looms large here.
Sipi, a beautiful little town on top of a hill, offers fantastic views on and hikes to waterfalls. Admire a series of three prominent falls on the edge of Mount Elgon National Park near the Kenyan border. Sipi offers a number of outdoor activities, like abseiling along the side of the main 100m Sipi Waterfall and climbing on 14 bolted sport routes with a range of difficulty. It is also the starting point for many hikes up Mount Elgon. The area is particularly famous for locally grown Bugisu Arabica coffee that only grows at an altitude of between 1,600 and 1,900 metres.

Tiny Rwanda‘s name may evoke memories of the horrific genocide that brutalised this country in 1994, but the country is better known today as one of Africa’s most stable nations, a plucky survivor that has come together in the decades since the dark times to create a promising and dynamic future. Tourism is once again a key contributor to the economy and the industry’s brightest star is the chance to track mountain gorillas through bamboo forests in the shadow of the Virunga volcanoes. These conical mountains are shrouded in equatorial jungles and helped earn Rwanda the moniker of ‘Le Pays des Mille Collines’ (Land of a Thousand Hills). So, while Rwanda’s scars may run deep, now is the time to help the country look to its future and embrace its new-found optimism.
With Rwanda’s new visa policy you’ll be able to apply for a visa on arrival with no prior formalities!
